Papa Ipi Tjurrkapa (Dog Dreaming): Ginger Wikilyiri and Keith Stevens

5 May - 11 July 2014

To commemorate the Pinctada Polo event in Broome for 2014, Short St Gallery would like to announce a special monumental exhibition by two senior desert law men. This vibrant collection of paintings represent the journeys of Papa (dog), many important inma (ceremony) are connected to the travels of the dog. It is apt that these works are being shown in Broome, a place where the desert meets the sea, and also where the dog dreaming people migrated. We would like to invite you to come and experience the wonder, and rich cultural history of the desert landscape documenting 30,000 years of journeys across the vast interior of Australia.
